Tiger Woods took a two-shot lead in the middle of the rain-stricken Zozo championship in Japan.

The 15-fold champion, who made his first appearance since knee surgery in August, birdied the last two holes while carding a six-under-par 64.

Woods, aiming for a record – second 82nd PGA Tour title, tops the rankings for fellow American Gary Woodland.

The tournament will end on Monday after the game was postponed from Friday.

"I felt pretty good about it today," Woods said. "I hit the ball a little better than yesterday, which is nice, and I had the speed of the greens again.

" The greens are soft – they are a bit slower today and we would add a little extra can give up quickly. I left many of my shots under the hole and I could be pretty aggressive. "

Round two had to be delayed until Saturday when six inches of rain fell, and the PGA then said that fans could not be present at Saturday's play due to" safety concerns ".

It is the first PGA tournament staged in Japan.

The re-scheduled third round starts on Sunday at 6:30 AM local time (9:30 PM Saturday) and players start the fourth round immediately afterwards.

The field is played until it gets dark and the tournament ends on Monday.

A small pond on the 10th became a lake because of heavy rain, which means that the T-piece had to be moved
